EMBO Workshop — Molecular and physiological basis of behavioural/cognitive defects in Neurodevelopmental disorders
31 Oct 2022 - 03 Nov 2022 • Bengaluru , India
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Cognitive deficits in neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) are a significant health burden worldwide. Mechanistic understanding of developmental defects of neural circuitry from system to molecular level is limited. The elucidation of genetic or epigenetic factors modulating the establishment of functional neural circuits during critical periods and their impact on cognitive function has shed significant insights into the causal relationship of behavioural deficits associated with NDD. The seamless integration of molecular knowledge with systems- and cognitive- level analyses is the 'need of the hour' to associate mechanisms of circuit-specific developmental deficits with cognitive outcome linked to NDD. This meeting will bring together the leading experts who are working on various aspects of the NDD to discuss recent advancement in the field. This EMBO Workshop will create a platform for young neuroscientists including postdoctoral fellows and graduate students who wish to pursue their research in this emerging field. This EMBO Workshop will particularly enable postdoctoral fellows and graduate students to present their research in front of leading experts and learn about challenges in the field through an informal, yet an intense discussion with invited speakers.

EMBO Lecture Course — Microphysiological systems: Advances and applications in human-relevant research
31 Oct 2022 - 05 Nov 2022 • Hyderabad, India
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
There has been an increasing awareness in the scientific community regarding the inability of animal models to often capture the complexities of human biology. In the last decade, there have been significant advances in the field of model systems that are based on human biology, including microphysiological systems (MPS). These systems aim to recapitulate the physiology and functions of a single human organ or a network of organs at a smaller scale, such as organoids or organs-on-chip. MPS have often been proposed as the next frontier of human-relevant research in drug discovery and testing. The lecture course will give an overview of the current research of how these model systems are being used to understand human disease and development. It will also cover design considerations, current challenges, setting standards and roadmap for broader adoption and use of these systems. In addition, the course would have networking sessions for early career researchers and students, along with discussions on collaborations, international grants, and entrepreneurship.

EMBO Workshop — Inositol lipids: Signaling platforms for organizing cellular architecture and physiology
14 Nov 2022 - 18 Nov 2022 • Bangalore, India
Organizer:
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Abstract:
Phosphoinosites are now well recognised as signaling intermediates and their role in cell surface signal transduction and sub-cellular processes such as membrane trafficking have been described. However, in recent years, the availability of high-resolution imaging tools and novel technologies have resulted in new models on the dynamics of PIs in living cellular organelles and the mechanisms by which their levels and distribution are controlled. This in turn has led to emerging ideas on novel modes by which PIs regulate cell architecture and physiology. In parallel, high-throughput genomics technologies have led to the description of genetic changes in protein components of the PI signaling system linked to human disease. Finally, lipidomics technologies are beginning to provide new insights into the acyl chain diversity of PIs that is likely to inform on their function as specific sub-cellular processes. This workshop offers an exciting and opportune moment to discuss the manner in which PIs act as master regulators of cellular architecture and physiology in health and disease.
